LaCrosse is built on the revised Epsilon II architecture, just like the Opel Insignia.
Although it is very similar to Opel Insignia, it also has similar style outside-and-inside to other premium class sedans, such as Japanese Lexus GS or Acura TL. 2010 LaCrosse will be offered in three models - CX, CXL and CXS.
Engine choises include two direct-injected V6 engines. CX and CXL models are powered by the new 3.0L V6, that has 255hp and 211lb-ft of torque. CXL has an optional AWD system. Top of the line CXS gets a 3.6L V6 with 280hp and 261lb-ft.
2010 LaCrosse production will begin this summer at the Fairfax Assembly facility in Kansas City. No word on prices, but we expect it around the $25,000 - $30,000 range. If this is true, then the LaCrosse will surely get into serious competition with other premium class sedans.
